I am very lucky in my massage practice to work with some very diverse people and issues. Some people come because they feel stressed and want help to relax. Others are managing conditions such as chronic back pain, IBS, migraine or are experiencing hormonal changes due to the menopause. Sometimes my massage treatment will stand alone but more often than not massage therapy is part of a multi-disciplinary approach to health and well being. I am always happy to work with clients to suggest things that they can do between appointments to help feel better in their body and mind.
One of my current clients is non-verbal and autistic and comes with a carer for a weekly appointment. I have put together a massage therapy session in conjunction with the care team and case worker and the positive feedback from the care team has been great; relaxation during the session, a sense of calm and wellbeing following the treatment, reduced tension during the week. It’s very rewarding for me as a therapist to work in this way and see such positive results.
